Baby #4: 40 weeks

How far along? 40 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: +31
Maternity clothes? Um, yes. Very few options left! I basically wear the same things every day.
Sleep: Good. Usually up once or twice at night and my back gets sore, but I'm sleeping pretty well. And napping. 
How I'm feeling: Pretty good! My back and feet get sore, sometimes I get heartburn, I'm tired... but surprisingly feeling better now than I did a while back.
Best moment this week: Good report from the doctor that Hazel is in a great position and is doing well.
Movement: Still very active. I think maybe she dropped?
Food cravings: Pop, salty snacks (Crunchy Cheetos?), chocolate
Food aversions: None. A lot of times nothing in the house sounds good, especially at lunch time. I haven't had as much of an appetite. Some nausea.
Gender: It's a GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: None. Lots of pretty strong Braxton Hicks contractions.
Belly Button in or out? Flat
What I miss: Easy movement, sleeping comfortably, clothes that fit
What I am looking forward to: Finishing this pregnancy, birth, meeting Hazel, moving.

Milestones: Today is our due date! I'm expecting to meet Hazel this week!

This is what a contraction looks like from my perspective with a full-term baby. Ha!
